I have made this twice and it is a keeper. I used canned sugar free cherry pie filling rather than the first four ingredients. I did add the almond extract to the pie filling. Almond extract really adds to cherry pies.

Note from Ann: The first 4 ingred. with the exception of only using 1 1/4 cups of water is the same recipe as on page 272 to make Jo's Cherry Pie Filling. The almond extract of 1/2 tsp. is optional. Cooking directions are in the first paragraph. This recipe can be used in place of any can of Cherry Pie Filling.
